Grant Making

“Every one of our successes can be chalked up to the Conservation Lands Foundation’s support – from our improvements in our infrastructure, to building our volunteer program with the Bureau of Land Management, to building our membership and fundraising. The advice, strategies and tools provided by the Conservation Lands Foundation have been invaluable.”
Beth Kampschror, Executive Director, Friends of the Missouri Breaks National Monument

The Conservation Lands Foundation makes grants under our Constituency Development Program. We provide financial and training resources to support organizations working to protect, restore and expand National Conservation Lands. The bulk of our resources in this program go to organizations that are in our Friends Grassroots Network. Resources include, but are not limited to:

  • Grants for project-specific work
  • Grants for organizational development
  • Fundraising support, including trainings and resource  development
  • Consulting for planning, policy or technical help
  • Trainings for board and staff development
  • Media and communications training
  • Participation at our annual conference, the Friends’ Grassroots Network Rendezvous

Due to overwhelming demand, participation in the Constituency Development Program is by invitation only. However, if you would like to discuss an idea or opportunity to enhance your work on behalf of the National Conservation Lands, please contact a Foundation staff person in your region.
